ESCANABA - An Escanaba man, who pleaded this week to accidentally shooting a man in the face, will be sentenced in Delta County Circuit Court in October.
Andrew Robert Maynard, 27, of Escanaba, pleaded no contest Tuesday to one count of careless discharge of a weapon causing injury or death. The misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment or a $2,000 fine.
